  1. How It's Made

    Saw this in FB comments, not my idea but a really good one. The TV series How It's Made ran for years, full of short vinettes of how everyday items are constructed. The narration and pacing make it super riffable.

  5. Miss Manners on Weddings

    This is on YouTube and it is amazing. 80's hair, bad acting, and smarmy, uptight Miss Manners presides over it all, "helping" two clueless, selfish horrible people and their selfish, horrible families plan a wedding. The first 2 minutes also include an actor (in what he must've thought was his big break) as a waiter, reciting the ENTIRE special of the day, down to the parsley flakes on the baked potato.
    This was MADE for Bridget and Mary Jo. Check it out: https://youtu.be/QEJKwagADyQ

  6. Safety belt for Susie 1963

    This is an excellent safety film for seatbelts. The cute little girl is now a 60-year-old beautiful lady who is the wife of a friend of mine. Even without riffing the short is hilarious. The film is posted on YouTube!

  7. Santa Claus and the Fairy Snow Queen

    This is a "short" although it’s longer than most, too long actually. The reasons are:
    1) "Snoopy" is very reminiscent of Mr. B Natural
    2) The Snow Queen wants Santa’s schwanstucker or something I couldn’t quite understand her.
    3) The Jack in the Box will cause you to wish him dead in some horrible way.

  8. Santa Claus' Punch and Judy

    Castle Films presents "Santa Claus' Punch and Judy." This short has all the Christmas themes; violence, racism, cruelty to animals, and an alligator attack. What's not to love about it?

    Really, I think there is a lot to riff on in this one.

  9. Santo gold

    I heard about this years ago and just remembered it. From the link below:

    "Santo Gold is without a doubt the most bizarre infomercial I’ve seen. This infomercial tries to do two very different tasks at the same time: sell a gold jewelry business opportunity and promote a “science-fiction space wrestling movie” called Blood Circus. Either one of these would be laughable enough on its own, but the combination of the two is downright unnerving."

  10. Better Use of Leisure Time (1950)

    [video type="youtube"]BH_gncP_5vc[/video]

    "Better Use of Leisure Time" is a short about how people today (1950's) have never had it so good. So if a teen has free time and they aren't doing some form of learning or labor then they're wasting their present and their future!

    Parts of it feel prime for ripping while other parts feel like an unattainable punch to the gut. E.g., a house and a family on a single-income 40-hour a week job that allows the breadwinner time to cut out early for family and hobbies.

  13. Marvel Super Heroes "Animated" TV Series

    In 1966, Grantray-Lawrence Animation produced a TV series made up of shorts revolving around various Marvel heroes--Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Namor The Sub-Mariner, and The Hulk. These stories were taken from the Silver Age comics.

    And when I say "taken from," I mean literally. The "animation", and I use the term generously, was basically the original comic art with some animation--moving lips, the occasional (slightly) moving figure or a fully animated silhouette, on-screen sound effects.

    These shorts reflected the slight cheesiness of Silver Age comics--characters describing their actions even as they played out onscreen, somewhat over-inflated dialogue, etc. In…

  14. More shorts like the Bill Baird marionettes...maybe just a show with short features instead of a whole movie

    I love those "short features" that you do before a full length movie. That short with the Bill Baird marionettes was hysterical. I would love to see a short with just short features.

  15. It’s Potty time

    It’s an old Duke University video..its has to be seen to be believed. True nightmare fuel. Fantastically you can find it on amazon. It would make an epic riff.

  16. Shopping Can Be Fun (1957)

    Bridget and Mary Jo have done riffs on menstruation, the suburbs, and Tupperware, so they would be perfect to riff this early tribute to the shopping mall.

    It's also in the public domain.

    And it can be found here:

  18. Heil Honey, I'm Home

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kg21j4ARBY
    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0259776/reference

    An amuse bouche of an idea of what this nonsense pilot episode of a failed sitcom that lasted ... one episode is about:
    In Berlin, 1938, Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun have a love-hate relationship with their Jewish neighbours in this bizarre spoof of 'fifties American sitcoms.
